Free-flow mixologist-mixed martinis make for much more interesting manicure and pedicure experiences at eforea: spa at Hilton Pattaya
If sipping a martini while your friendly beautician cuts and buffs your finger and toe nails to the point where your unadorned hands and feet could feature macro-focused in advertisement photo shoots for rings and things sounds like the kind of juggling act you're up for, make for eforea: spa at Hilton Pattaya and your wish is their command.
For a modest increment on the usual manicure and pedicure tariff, one of their barmen will stand by mixing however many glasses of selected martinis you can manage in the time it takes to clean, trim, straighten, and strengthen your twenty cuticles and give your feet and calves a bit of a work out too.
It's the perfect pick-me-up prior to a romantic dinner at Flare, the hotel's fine dining restaurant or Horizon, its creative Middle-East meets Michelin referenced roof-top restaurant and adjoining chill out bar where DJs play the hot club tunes late into the starry, starry night.
Better still bring your significant other or a friend or three and get the core of the party started en masse while being waited on and groomed in a fashion suitable for Caesar and Cleopatra. "Where did you get that Nile polish darling?"
Tension from your hands and feet soaks away as they are soothed and nourished and as Dirty Martini, Classic Martini, Perfect Martini and Green Apple Martini slip down the right way.
The Luxury Manicure and Pedicure treatments include cuticle sculpting, nail shaping, gentle exfoliation, and an effervescence soak to brighten nails and revitalize tired hands and feet. A hydrating hand or foot mask is then applied and the session is rounded off with a massage and polish. The most effective OPI products from the US are mainly used. Hair care by L'Oreal is equally upscale.
It's all about an hour before your nails emerge absolutely perfect-looking.
Note, however, that nail art is not available as an option at this exclusive beauty salon.
That's because eforea: spa at Hilton Pattaya is all about the beauty that comes from being healthy and slathering acrylic onto your nails is liable to land you intensive nail care.
It would also smell rather bad in what after all is a spa.
Among the products used are OPI Avoplex Exfoliating Cuticle Treatment, OPI Avoplex Oil for straightening and softening cuticles and OPI Swiss Hand Guard, the ultimate antiseptic handwash gel. Kirstin Florian chamomile body lotion is applied to the feet after the scrub of grape and massage leaving them feeling wonderfully supple and soft. Hands are scrubbed with a grape formula.
